Mrs. March C. was born in 1960. She lives in Preaek Ta Sau village in Kandal province. She and her husband, Mr. Moeurn Met are farmers who own more than 1-hectare of land to grow vegetables and rice for selling to support their family. They try to work hard in the field, yet they still fall short in income. Because they do not have enough money to support the family from farming, Mrs. March C. has decided to ask for a loan to grow more vegetables and to hire laborers to harvest and transport rice. This couple has a child who is a laborer. Her husband is on the right in the picture.
